These little reminders are on my kitchen windowsill.
You know how you look at some things all the time and then you become blind to them?
I saw them with new eyes the other day. I was thinking…hmmm…Proverbs and Dr. Suess…how do they go together? But then I realized they do! I think God’s telling me to TRUST Him with all of my heart and then I will go places. They absolutely go together! Trust and going places. You know what I mean?
I think we all have places we want to go. We all have plans. We all have ideas and dreams. But I’m a firm believer that God’s dreams and plans for me are bigger and better than anything I can imagine. You too!
I love this from Ephesians.
My response is to get down on my knees before the Father, this magnificent Father who parcels out all heaven and earth. I ask him to strengthen you by his Spirit—not a brute strength but a glorious inner strength—that Christ will live in you as you open the door and invite him in. And I ask him that with both feet planted firmly on love, you’ll be able to take in with all followers of Jesus the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God.
God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us. – Ephesians 3:14-21
It reminds me…it’s not knowledge or intellectual muscle or physical muscle that will help me go to the places I want to go. It’s spiritual surrender. I put down my brute strength and He fills me with glorious inner strength and off we go!
He want’s us to live full lives. He wants to fill us up so He can take us places.
Your balloon awaits…
